It is important that you file comments on the EPA's proposal for 2017 RFS volumes. EPA has proposed to lower the 2017 RFS requirement for conventional renewable fuels (like corn ethanol) to 14.8 billion gallons from the level of 15 billion gallons established by Congress in the 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act. Please follow the simple steps in the attached document to file your comment with EPA before July 11.
Also, the EPA published a draft Ecological Risk Assessment for atrazine, an herbicide used for weed control in growing corn and other crops. If it stands, EPA's recommendation would effectively ban the use of atrazine in most farming areas in the U.S. Visit www.ncga.com/atz to submit your comments to the EPA. The deadline to submit comments is October 4. For more information on atrazine, visit agsense.org.
